Preventing truck accidents: Technology no substitute for sleep

Earlier this month, we wrote about the truck accident that critically injured New Yorker Tracy Morgan. While traveling with friends on the New Jersey Turnpike, Morgan’s limo was struck by a semi-truck and flipped over. Morgan and two others were critically injured. Another passenger and fellow comedian was killed.

Report exposes GM's culture of complacency: Part II

In our last post, we began a discussion about the “Valukas Report,” a 325-page summary of an investigation into safety problems at General Motors. The report was commissioned earlier this year in response to the GM recall scandal involving faulty ignition switches and other automotive defects.

The number of fatalities caused by pedestrian accidents was 16 times higher than the number of deaths caused by natural disasters during the same years.
